He further states that “some species are exclusively plankton-fed, others fish-free, and they are certainly not a threat to humans while on the contrary they are very important species for marine biodiversity, as they play a very important regulatory role in their populations. fish bales. “ Indeed, Ms Miliou points out, “they are considered purifiers of the seas as they usually feed on the weaker flocks of flocks and thus purify the remaining populations”.
